actually not so fast.

cartoon networks rates skyrocketed and toonami was the most tweeted thing world wide.

it was just wishful thinking till yesterday when adultswim tweeted "If you want it back, let us no. #Bringbacktoonami
there have been millions of tweets since yesterday and counting. Not to mention a petition online with thousands of signatures by people wanting the same thing, started last saturday. it is in the top 50 things tweeted about this week. also cartoon network just brought back cartoon planet on friday nights which is a block of TV devoted to oldschool new millenium cartoons they had parted with, to which there already was great response to.

this is due to the same reason nickelodeon brought back their 90's broadcasting- being that there has been an overwhelming response of people wanting old nostaligic shows. Adding Toonami would just sweeten the pot.

So far it seems that Cartoon network is at least considering bringing the block back.

I hope they bring it back.  I never got the chance to watch Toonami when it used to be on.

Eh, Toonami was utter crap the final few years. Now if they go back to what it was from 2000-2004 in level of quality shows and all that...then awesome, but outside of that...meh.

Being the total and complete butthurt I am, I don't really remember much of Toonami being all that great and when it came back for April Fools, I was surprised at the amount of passion I found inside everyone for it.

Honestly, I was a fan of Adult Swim.  Well, before it became all crappy live action stuff.  The only show I'm a fan of for that they've ever had that's live action is Tim and Eric Awesome Show.  And even that got a little on the weird side.

Early on Toonami showed some great stuff like Cardcaptor Sakura, Evangelion, Samurai Jack, .hack//SIGN, Tenchi Muyo, Robotech, ReBoot, etc...it's only later it started to get meh...
